PEEK-OPTIMA Reinforced

Enhanced mechanical strength & stiffness.

This implantable compound is composed of short carbon fibers dispersed within a PEEK-OPTIMA Natural polymer matrix. The resulting material has enhanced mechanical and physical properties for more demanding, load bearing implants and applications.

PEEK-OPTIMA Reinforced provides a unique combination of features and benefits, including:

  • Excellent wear performance in articulating joints. Studies indicate an advantage over UHMWPE for joint prostheses and bearing surfaces*
  • Exceptional fiber-to-matrix bond strength enhances material strength and durability
  • Bone-like stiffness can reduce the occurrence of stress shielding
  • Proven biocompatibility ensures safe, long-term implantation
  • Radiolucent on X-rays and CT scans and MRI compatible
  • Extensive history of use in FDA-approved, long-term implantable devices dating from 1999
